Lufthansa connects Liverpool to the world

28 Jan 2022


St Helens Chamber Members will soon be able to take advantage of flying from Liverpool John Lennon Airport to a host of global destinations following the recent announcement by Lufthansa to open up a new connection between Liverpool and their main hub at Frankfurt.

Starting 2nd May 2022 the German carrier will offer flights direct from Liverpool to Frankfurt, where all Lufthansa and Star Alliance carriers operate under one roof within one single terminal, enabling transferring passengers from Liverpool to easily connect to over 150 destinations in Europe, Asia, Middle East, Africa and the Americas.

Lufthansa is one of Europe’s leading airlines and this will be the first time in their 66 year history that they will have operated from Liverpool. Flight time will be just one hour and 40 minutes with the route operated by their Airbus A320 (168 seats) or Bombardier CRJ900 (90 seats) jet aircraft.

Chamber Member Liverpool John Lennon Airport is the award winning faster, easier, friendlier Airport of choice for passengers from across the region and is recognised for its relaxed, hassle free environment and best in class operational performance with a record that shows that more flights departed on time from Liverpool than from any other airport in England.

Rachel Willacy, Head of Business Services at St Helens Chamber attended the recent announcement of the new route by Lufthansa held at the airport and commented: “Liverpool John Lennon Airport is on our door step, so to have such easy access to global connectivity combined with all the other hassle free benefits of flying from Liverpool is great news for the Chamber and our Members, particularly as we all look towards recovery from the pandemic.”

“Lufthansa will be the first global network airline in Liverpool with easy reach to destinations on 4 continents”, says Heinrich Lange, Senior Director Sales Northern Europe Lufthansa Group Airlines. “As a premium carrier we will be the only airline at John Lennon Airport to offer seats in Business Class and all the amenities of a full service approach.”

John Irving, CEO Liverpool John Lennon Airport commented: “It has been a long held desire of both the Airport and the City Region as a whole to reconnect Liverpool with the world and we are therefore absolutely delighted to be welcoming Lufthansa to Liverpool John Lennon Airport.

To be able to connect Liverpool globally via Frankfurt will bring huge benefits to the business sector across the region both now and into the future and of course will now enable the world to easily connect inbound too, helping visitors from across the world, to access the City Region.”
